of that is going to change when gay couples are allowed to do the same. the fact is that throughout the nation's history, gay couples and gay individuals have been paying their taxes, and by paying our taxes, we help support all the legal benefits and protections of marriage. according to the government accountability office, there are over 01100 legal benefits and protections that are given to married couples. we have been subsidizing those throughout the nation's history. yet we are unable to take advantage of those same incentives to marry. that cannot be constitutional. host: let me ask you this. should the court be jumping in at this point? one of the arguments being made by the lawyers for proposition 8, today's oral argument, is that there is a social movement happening. polls are showing more people in favor. let that take place. let states decide what they want to do. is there a role for the supreme court? caller: of course there is. this cannot be accomplished in a piecemeal, state-by-state basis. most of the legal benefits of marriage come from the federal government. but me give yo

. >> everything changes in this country, all the time. so i think it's exactly what this country is supposed to be about. >> michael: the issue has picked up speed since 2008 when california passed prop 8 a ban on gay marriage, the next year two couples sued the state. four years later the case has landed in the supreme court. the justices will decide whether california voters had the constitutional right to bangay marriage. lawyers for both sides made their case today. the lawyer representing gay couples said that prop 8 is unconstitutional because it quote walls off gays and lesbians from marriage. but charles cooper argued that there was already a democratic process going on in the states to determine whether gay people should marry, and the court should stay out of it. he also said allowing same-sex couples to marriage would sever marriage and encourage so-called responsible procreation. >> michael: that issue of whether marriage is just about having kids is part of the discussion. here is justice kagan. >> michael: would that be constitutional? a very good questio

in terms of where -- between these two men. >> can i give obama -- go ahead. >> here's what could change now. i think part of the affection for biden that a lot of people have is sort of predicated on the idea he didn't really want anything. he was pretty old when he took the job. nobody really thought he was going to try to succeed obama as president, and the first term it wasn't really an issue. i think that might change. i think biden does want something. i think biden has gotten kind of interested in being president. in fact, this scuttle but that he thinks he is running. it's a private joke he has with himself. nobody else thinks he would be a very strong candidate, but that changes the dynamic. if you are tying to get that job, people relate to you very differently than if you are at the end of your career or helping someone else. the president has been making a number of cabinet -- there's a lot of talk about obama ushering out the form of rivals, and he is bringing out his folks. at this point it's a mixed wag, if you will. i mean, in john kerry, he doesn't have someone who is pa
the expansion of medicaid, and governor rick scott of florida has changed his mind and governor chris christie i don't know if he's changed his mind, but accepting that medicaid. why do you think those two governors are doing it and why aren't you? >> well, we looked at this rather intently. the legislature just offer the course of the last 24 hours in texas and the republican caucus overwhelmingly support the position of not expanding medicaid. it is a broken system. we have asked the federal government for years to allow us the flexibility to be able to put these programs into place, but the fact is, it's a broken system. it's going to cost trillions of dollars to implement this program. but texans are not going to be black mailed into expanding a program, but that the federal government is telling us they're giving us all of this free money. greta. they can't keep criminals in jail today, much less be able to have extra money to pass out to these states. so the idea that money is going to be available for expanded medicaid is a pipe dream. >> greta: all right, are you saying that governor ric

the election was a fait accompli, you would think the incentive would change because the next person up for re-election if you're a republican member of congress is you. it's not president obama. he's done having elections. you're the next one up, so you would think talking up improvement in the economy and your participation would be a good idea, but they're still not doing it. i think part of it is the incentive structure, the republican party is now so weighted on the side of constantly being against barack obama, whatever he's for, you're against. whatever is good for him is bad for you, bad for the country. if that incentive structure hasn't changed enough for the republicans to get the memo that maybe it would be good politics for them to start saying the economy is getting better. the other reason is they agreed to raise taxes in january. that was a painful thing to do and they'd -- >> for the top 1%. >> barely. exactly. just a minor, and we also raised taxes on everybody with that payroll tax -- >> nobody argues about that, unfortunately. we should have a whole show on that baby. >> th
worked on long island and it's changed long island in a lot of ways. places have gotten far, far more diverse quite quickly. i remember when i covered the last big immigration fight in 2006-2007, one of the hot spots was in long island partly because things had changed very quickly. there were a lot of day laborers. tensions around day laborers. what are the politics four and your district? >> the politics for me to be very honest with you and i think i have extremely intelligent constituents -- >> as does every member of congress. >> they follow what's going on as far as in the news and everything else like that. but my district, the immigration issue is so diverse. it's not one solid large group. >> interesting. >> so, you know, i have asians. i have latinos. i have just -- you name it. if you look at the percentages they are there. so it's not an issue. i will say to you eight or nine years ago it was an issue. i was speaking at a temple and they were saying, you know, they didn't like the way downtown was going because these people were buying the stores in a said so you would rat
to some of his credibility in the job and saying we have to offer something more. we have to change our strategy and present something that changes the calculus on the ground in syria or we're not going to breakthrough this. >> ifill: the quick sandals for secretary of states or presidents for decades has been the arab-israeli peace process. do we detect any shifting toward more engagement on the part of the u.s. in that process or is that yet another thankless task waiting for the secretary? >> president obama just made this important trip to israel. i think a very necessary trip and so he's now established a much better relationship with the israeli people and some ability to expert influence there. so that prepares the ground a bit but the actual conflict itself i think is no more ripe for diplomacy right now than has been for a long time but secretary kerry seems determined that he wants to try. the question is, you know, will president obama really back him? because we know that in the end this is the kind of a conflict where you need the white house involved. it very quickly becom
, i suppose you can force the child to say, this is my friend, but it changes the definition of what it means to be a friend. that's, it seems to me, what supporters of proposition 8 are saying here. all you're interested in is the label. and you insist on changing the definition of the label. >> wow. gavin newsom. thank you for joining us. >> i didn't get that fully. i was thinking back five years ago when i fell in love, you know, with my wife now, jen. if i sat on my knee and said, honey, i want to spend the rest of my life with you, will you civil union me? i'd be here with a scar. the point being, that label means a tremendous amount. that symbol, marriage is what it's about. you can't have something else and call it equal. i mean, that's the whole argument against civil unions. they are something else. so with respect to chief justice, i just don't think he gets that. >> that argument was made by our cardinal who asked a small group of journalists. the word gay went from fred astaire gay to having a good time to being a homosexual. words change their meanings. >> to say it has
. the obama administration announced the proposed changes today: they would require two-thirds less sulfur in gasoline and a reduction in other emissions beginning in 2017. they also would set tighter pollution limits for new vehicles themselves at the same time. the e.p.a. says it would reduce premature deaths and improve public health for a minimal cost. but opponents say it could hit consumers at the pump by adding as much as nine cents a gallon. juliet eilperin broke this story for the "washington post" and she joins me now. welcome to the newshour. >> thanks so much. >> so why is the obama administration doing this, putting these proposals out there? >> there are a couple of reasons. one is the fact that they are requiring vehicles to be cleaner in the years ahead. they've basically reduced greenhouse-gas emissions from these vehicles. and so you will see between 2016 and 2025, the vehicles are going to become much more efficient, get more piles -- miles per gallon. so one of the things automakers are asking for is for cleaner fuels because the sulfur in gasoline really affects the ca
think very revealing window into how the country has changed. >> jeffrey toobin, thank you so much. these two cases are going before the supreme court at a time when public support for same-sex marriage continues to grow. recent polls show that's the case, but maybe the most striking number of concerns how many americas count gays and lesbians as close members of their circles these days, the higher visibility of gay power in hollywood has not exactly hurt that cause. >> knock knock, anybody homo? >> i am, i am. >> it's just a tv show, a situation comedy, not even a drama. >> tonight at dinner i'll tell my mother i'm gay. >> vice president biden has credited "will & grace" with changing americans' attitudes about same-sex marriage. >> i think will & grace probably did more to educate the american public than anything anybody's done so far. >> on this, supporters and opponents of same-sex marriage agree, hollywood has been influential of encouraging acceptance of gays and lesbians. it was through the medium of television that millions of americans first had open gays and lesbians in
on your bill making many changes at my request. they have made the bill better and reduced the negative side effects of previous versions. i trust you think so as well because you have included the changes in the new bill. the new bill in your substitute amendment also included a revised bill by senators gillibrand and kirk on the subject of gun trafficking. those revisions also reflect changes that i asked senator gillibrand to make, and i think it would be worthwhile to outline all the changes that have been made to the bill since they were first introduced. i think they demonstrate good faith of the chairman and senator gillibrand. for instance, senator gillibrand's bill originally would have made it a federal crime to transfer two or more guns if that person knew that the result would be a violation of state or local law. that would have given states and localities a one-way incentive to address new gun control measures and force the cost of prosecution and incarceration on the federal government. it also would have created for the first time a situation in which violation of state

was tax rates won't change. >> right. bill: which, pay attention to that. that phrasing there. however, you bo after the loopholes, whether it is, interest rate deduction, whether charity deductions will stay on the table or not. do you see any of that being mixed into this current debate? >> yes it is, very much is in the debate but if you cut deductions, the president calls them loopholes, if you cut deductions those deductions are used primarily by upper income people. they will in the end pay a lot more money in tax. that is form of tax increase. and then you have this tax rate question. if we get the "buffett rule", which the president is pushing for, that would be a change in the top tax rate as well as a closing of loopholes and deductions. bill: we'll see how they negotiate in the coming months or month. thank you, sir. see you at 9:20 on fbn. martha. martha: how much exactly do the top 10% of american households pay in taxes? according to the tax foundation the top 1% pay about 37.38% of the total tax burden renn in this country. more than a third, close to 40%. the top 1% ear
